    Sarah Vine must be fuming. But, of course, fuck her with a soggy cactus.

    It does also speak to his hypocrisy, given his time as justice secretary and what he supported in terms of drug policy then.

    But then him being a hypocrite and a cunt is hardly a revelation, either.

    The Tory leadership contest has turned into a Chris Morris sketch.

    'Luckily, the amount of heroin I use is harmless. I inject about once a month on a purely recreational basis. Fine. But what about other people less stable, less educated, less middle-class than me? Builders or blacks for example. If you're one of those, my advice to you is leave well alone. Good luck.'

    Twenty-two years ago, God help us all.

    Pretty sure my Tory MP always wanted to, but was never cool enough. Failed lawyer you see.

    I hate this - all these toffs coming out to say that they tried marijuana one time on their GAP-YAH (oh please, as if that gaggle of former journalists, lawyers and daytime TV presenters haven't been coked out of their minds since the nineties) but absolutely no recognition that our drug laws are draconian and outdated.

    I mean, the Tories are actually feral aren't they? Jeremy Cunt coming out with his views on abortion; these people are not fit for government AT ALL

    Yeah, I don't actually care if Boris Johnson has done so much heroin that he's now having to inject into his cock because he can't find a vein in his arms, but the hypocrisy of judging others for their drug habits at the same time is astonishing.

    Actually, I have no reason to believe that Johnson is on heroin, but it would explain almost everything about his behaviour over the last fifteen years or so.

    Well, me too. I’d benefit, but I’m QUITE happy paying this (and actually, possibly a bit more if it helped) amount of tax ANYWAY.

    Agree 100% with @Sheena and @Indie there.

    He's going for 'grass roots' (ugh) Tory party members isn't he? I mean that's the thing - he's not popular with them, so I guess playing it this way he can win their vote given what they're like. He's playing the game well - especially also not taking any media interviews as he'll only put his foot in it.

    Gove is down at the moment. Hunt the CUNT will never get in as he was a remainer to begin with and they won't want that.

    Which really only leaves him with Leadsom (three-point plan bollocks & lying on her C.V. - YES WE REMEMBER) and Raab (sexist misogynist DANGER signs flashing ahead even if physically he is easy on the eye :shy:) .

    It's Boris's to lose really...

    Rory Stewart should defect to the Lib Dems. He'd be more at home there and he'd have a better chance of becoming Prime Minister. Unless that Ummana's plan...

    Now, who saw those sentences coming, even a couple of months ago?

    It looks like Hunt really wants it. He is a lying psychopath in my experience working for the NHS. We should, as a nation, be very wary of him if he gets in.

    Hunt is Patrick Bateman for tax dodgers. A pathological liar and more dangerous than he looks.

    Johnson's tax cut plan is nothing more than a bribe for wealthy pensioners. He says he's going to pay for it primarily through National Insurance contributions, which pensioners don't pay. It also means that middle rate taxpayers will be paying the most towards funding his tax cut and that's just despicable.

    I hate them all, but Stewart is the only one vaguely acceptable to me.

    Having said that, he'd be such an odd looking little man to be our PM.

    Definitely Rory Stewart. Maybe he's a surprise cunt though, need to read more into him.

    probably Javid of all the vacuous other cunts.

    The press are acting like Boris has it in the bag already, which I suppose means he does.

    Thank God I got out of the UK.

    But on the flipside, he's so terrible he can only do the tories damage publically. And he's the least likely to get anything from Europe, and even Jez and his dreams of Lexit couldn't support crashing out with no deal, so weirdly, he's probably the best choice if you want the tories to die and brexit fail.

    He's also likely to soak up some of the votes that would have gone to BXP if we had a moderate/soft brexit leader and there was a GE, we all just have to really really beg the universe for a miracle when it comes to Labour pulling their fucking fingers out!

    FUCK.

    Well, Boris has bribed the Tory membership with a tax cut. Which middle earners will pay for. Because he's a cunt.

    Our only hope is that someone has a nugget of news that can bury him but given everything the press are happy with, this seems unlikely.

    The fact that the attempt to block No Deal yesterday failed is really concerning... And it was fucking Labour MPs who kept it from passing. The motion was defeated by 11 votes - eight Labour MPs defied the whip ands 15 abstained. :manson:

    Defied the whip and voted against the motion:

    Kevin Barron (Rother Valley)
    Ronnie Campbell (Blyth Valley)
    Jim Fitzpatrick (Poplar & Limehouse)
    Caroline Flint (Don Valley)
    Stephen Hepburn (Jarrow)
    Kate Hoey (Vauxhall)
    Jon Mann (Bassetlaw)
    Graham Stringer (Blackley & Broughton)

    Abstained:

    Clive Efford (Eltham)
    Julie Elliott (Sunderland Central)
    Paul Farrelly (Newcastle Under Lyme)
    Hugh Gaffney (Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill)
    Lindsay Hoyle (Chorley)
    Imran Hussain (Bradford East)
    Barbara Keeley (Worsley & Eccles South)
    Ian Lucas (Wrexham)
    Gordon Marsden (Blackpool South)
    Melanie Onn (Grimsby)
    Ruth Smeeth (Stoke on Trent North)
    Gareth Snell (Stoke On Trent Central)
    Jo Stevens (Cardiff Central)
    Derek Twigg (Halton)
    Rosie Winterton (Doncaster Central)

    Labour are as destructive a force as the Tories at the moment and any of you still lending your support to them are as dated and antiquated in your views as Tory voters.

    I’m surprised Leadsom is out and surprised that Hancock is through. Leadsom and mcvey’s votes will surely go to Johnson. They’re both as awful and right wing as him.

    The big question is who will be 2nd place in the government vote . As things stand it really could be any of the other 6. I’m hoping for Stewart so much just because he represents something completely different to the rest.

    I truly don't understand how Kate Hoey is still a Labour MP. Is she still popular in her constituency?

    Also, remember when people thought Caroline Flint was 'fabulous'? :side-eye:
